Can't enter special characters in Libre Office nor in passwords

I’m used to using the alt key and typing 3 or 4 numbers to enter special characters. such as alt 248 for the degree symbol. Can’t get this to work in Libre or in Ubuntu for passwords.
Help ?

Try with: Ctrl-Shift-U (an underlined u is displayed), then type the unicode code, then Enter.
The code in hexadecimal.
For example: B0 = º


Thanks for your timely reply AND for the “list of characters” as well. This is just what I was looking for.
I’ve tried a couple and they work well in a doc. I assume they will be usable in passwords also. Will check it out.
